Ready to Climb in Nepal? Be Ready for an Airplane Fever Dream

Nervous fliers should avoid the Tenzing–Hillary Airport at all costs.

The tiny airport in Lukla, Nepal offers 30 daily flights to and from Kathmandu. It is built beside a 9,200-foot cliff; the runway ends right at the edge.

The History Channel once gave it the title of world’s most dangerous airport on its program, Most Extreme Airports.

The only airport in the Mount Everest region was renamed the Tenzing-Hillary Airport in January 2008, about a week after the death of one of its namesakes, Sir Edmund Hillary. The New Zealand explorer and his climbing partner, Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, were the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest.

Would you be nervous to catch a flight at this airport?
